This contest is to raise money for the Snowdrop Foundation which helps with Children’s Cancer research and support. If you did not know about this salsa contest we are sponsoring for the Houston Hot Sauce Show, then you have a few days to get your product out. The deadline for receipt is September 1st if you are not vending at the Houston Hot Sauce Show. If you are vending at the show you still need to inform me exactly what your entries will be. I opened up the contest to not only award the best salsa, but also award the best fruit-based salsa. If you have a fruit-based salsa, it will not be in the best salsa category, so we can make 2 competitive contests we can award prizes for.
We will begin sampling the salsa before the show even opens on September 8th, and during the award ceremony we will announce our winning salsas. If you think you have the salsa of champions and want to pit yourself against the very best of salsa out there, then this is your chance to put your salsa where our mouths is/are. No fresh salsa is allowed in the contest, only jarred, professionally labeled products are permitted. If you have posted on Facebook, ILoveItSpicy or the Show page your intentions, that is not good enough. You need to contact me your intent at al******@ya***.com.
I expect at least 40 different salsa submissions with a potential for more. Entries are $5/salsa with 2 jars of salsa per entry. 100% of the proceeds will go to the Snowdrop Foundation, so if you want to contribute more than the $5 entry fee then we would be delighted to take any and all offerings. If you wish to help out even if you are not a part of the salsa contest then please do.
Send your all your salsa entries & donations (checks and money orders made out to the Snowdrop Foundation) to:
ILoveItSpicy Salsa Contest
Houston Hot Sauce Festival
12327 Piping Rock
Houston, TX 77077
Remember simply sending your salsa to the show is not going to get your salsa into the contest. I repeat, you MUST send me an email by September 1st with your list of salsa for the contest, and if you are not vending at the show, your salsa MUST be received by September 1st as well. Those vending will be required to submit the salsa to the event coordinators before the start of the show, September 8th, approximately 9am. We need to create a list of the submissions prior to the show, so no salsa will be permitted after the deadline.
Details on attending the Houston Hot Sauce Show can be found by clicking the web banner to the left of the page. I look forward to seeing everyone there, but especially trying all those great salsa entries.
